Hi,

First thing, I'm not a SQL expert. I have general knowledge of SQL but it starts to fall away when replication and clustering come into play.

I have a single sql db and associated front-end  application in Site A. I have users connecting from Site B to access the the application/db. I'd prefer to have a copy of the db sitting in Sites B for Site B users, the Site A db for Site A users, all while keeping the copy of the db in Sites A & B  in synch with each other.

What I'd like to know is can I have the db actively being used in both Site A & B with the add/remove/changes being replicated to the alternate site? I'm not after a fail-over scenario where one db is the master and the other the standby db. They both need to be active.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

You, sir, sound like you are looking for peer-to-peer replication. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms151196.aspx.  It's a really complicated little guy due to merge conflicts and conflict resolution.  But that article is a really good jumping in point.  Hope that helps!
